How do we manage the emotional impact of tragic news reports from around the world? How can we help or make a difference? Meredith Van Der Klip offers some useful practical advice to help navigate troubled times.

"God says in Zechariah 4:10, “Do not despise the day of small things.” In the face of large-scale tragedy, most of these things seem so very small and insignificant. But God does not despise such small things. In his sovereignty he has not placed me in the midst of war, a flood, a bushfire or a location hugely impacted by the pandemic for today. For now he has put me here, and so I will seek to do what I can where he has placed me, to his honour and glory."
